Step Into It

This week's glass stitch is a very welcome find for me.  It's a variation of a more open stitch I found in a book last Fall while I was working on Melissa's new Emma Williams Rooftops piece.  

It's clean and simple, though the compensation gave me a tiny headache.  (I can't lie to you.)  Once I got through it, I was thrilled I hung in there.

An appropriate colored Kreinik Metallic is a great thread for any glass.  For some windows, especially on canvases with historical or vintage themes, consider one of their vintage metallics (connoted by a V in the thread color) for a slightly matte metallic.  It's a great look.
